We have some good news, and some bad news

-Any sort of article that begins "Look at the bright side" probably won't spend the rest of the article looking at the bright side.

-The Detroit News says about the same thing, but is guilty of burying the lead. Our favorite mouthpiece, and this blog's namesake, has a potent quotation at the bottom of the page.

"I'm telling you, Darko is a Serbian gangster. Darko's got some bodies back there (in Serbia-Montenegro). He can go psycho on guys."

This all stems from the Darko-Mutumbo run-in from Friday's game against the rockets. Darko was playing rough with Dikembe. (Which is, in itself, a good sign. Remember, back in the draft, Darko's mean streak was supposed to separate him from other Euros.) Dikembe took offense, got in Darko's face and did some now trademarked finger wagging. Dikembe threw in some jawing to boot. Dikembe got T'd up and Darko flashed a sly, knowing smile. He then went on to throw back a shot from Dikembe and one from T-Mac.

That, my friend, is the definition of ganster.

(Paranthetical note: I think one reason Darko remained so cool and collected through all of this because there's no way he had any idea what Dikembe was saying.)
